Finally vintage has been brought to photography..... i've been fascinated recently with the re-invent of the LOMO cameras into the UK market... but well, they're not really able to take any, REAL photos.... other than strange blown up pieces of art.
The replica Lecia however, brings functionality to old style. In comparison to the new raft of cheap point and shoot cameras, this one certainly lies low down on the list of features. But who couldnt love this blast from the past.
Though it only boasts 4 megapixels, you'd be surprised how good the photos are.... 4MP's might be a little 2005, but who really NEEDS 12. Clearly no professional photographer would dare use one of these little gems, no more than a serious tennis player would use a raquet from the 50's, but if all you're after is some speedy snaps with style then the Lecia is for you.
Aside from the 4MP's, the replica boasts a modern LCD screen that behaves much in the way youd expect any digital cameras too. There is ofcourse a good old fashioned viewfinder
Overall, a good camera for anyone looking for something different.... granted it wont give you the cyrstal clear shots you could get from a dslr, but atleast you'll look good taking them
